Question about Sennheiser Audio Players & Recorders

Open Question

RS 175 not charging. I don't think the power source is working.

I have charged my RS 175 for over 24hrs (for 1st time use). I can turn the headphones on (by holding the button for 2 seconds). This on/off button stays green. The battery indicator on the recharge base goes out - no illumination when the headphones are off the charger. When the headphones are on the charger, the bass and surround lights work. When the headphones are off the charger, these lights go off. The charger is sitting behind my television (less than 2 metres from where I am sitting). I have the TV sound set to Audio Out/ Optical. The optical cable is connected to the TV and to the charger. I have watched several YouTube tutorials - but still no sound from my headphones. Right now, the green light is on (headphones) the on light is blinking slowly on & off on the charger, the surround/bass lights are not on (charger) and the battery indicator is off (charger) I just checked the power source - unclipped the Aust. adapter, re-clipped and plugged into the surge protected power board and now there is no lights working on the charger. The TV is connected to the same power board and is working ok. Please help a technology challenged person use her brand new Sennheiser headphones... thanks Leanne

SOURCE: power button is green - no blinks / no picture / no sound

Unplug it from the wall, wait 2 minutes and plug it back in. if problem still exists, its probably the main pcb.

sounds like your charging circuit isn't working or the adapter isn't putting out enough power or amprage to fully charge the battery, or you battery went bad. if the charging circuit is bad then so is *********** board, time to burry the system and buy a new one

SOURCE: digital optical output for technics 5.1 surround sound receiver

I went to the HDTV plasma manual. It stated the only way the digital optical audio output would work (from this TV) was to go to the menu, select audio and turn off the TV speakers. Basically, it had nothing to do with the technics receiver.

SOURCE: Brand new Sennheiser RS140 headphones stopped working

Mine is a bit older (2yrs), but I have exactly the same problem. Absolutely no sound from the headphones (no beeps). I also tried new batteries, but still nothing.

If you have a solution, let me know!

Sennheiser RS 120 headphones won't work, only hear static


Adjust the tuning wheel on the side of the headphones so it picks it up.

if these are older headphones it's likely that the batteries have gone bad or are defective, if this is a new unit, (aside from returning it for working one) it could still be the batteries, but the other likely issue is the charging unit is defective. you could test with a volt meter to see if it's getting juice. you could also have a short in the headphones somewhere.

No sound on left ear


I will assume you have tried tuning them via the control mounted on the headphones and still get nothing from the left ear.


First try a different channel setting on the base and retune the headphones.. if this doesn't fix it..


Check all your connections.. at the headphone base as well as the source.


Also I suggest trying them on a different source.


Since you did not mention what the source is.. I will make a few additional suggestions.


If plugged into an amplifier.. try repeated switching between output sources.. If the amp is playing fine through both speakers.. pick up an inexpensive adapter that will allow you to plug the red and white rca jacks into a headphone jack, then try HP output. (some RS 120 units shipped with this adapter)


If the source is the television itself check the connections on the back.. and check your balance settings on the sets main menu.


Depending on how old the headphones are along with frequency of use you may need new batteries.


Make sure the batteries are fully charged.. remove them and test the voltage.. they can do this for you at Radio Shack if you don't own a volt ohm meter or some other testing device.


Replacement batteries are not that expensive.. just make sure you replace them with the exact type (AAA - NiMH) and allow plenty of time for them to charge before use (overnight)


This last bit of advice I suggest caution.


You can put a fresh set of AAA standard batteries in the headphones and test them.. DO NOT PUT THE HEADPHONES ON THE CHARGING CRADLE with these batteries or you MAY DAMAGE THE HEADPHONES.


In fact I suggest you place a piece of tape or something on the cradle before you do this to remind you.. once you finish testing the headphones with standard non rechargeable batteries .. again trying different settings and tunings the set.. If they work .. you probably need a new set of rechargeable batteries..


This is a quick and dirty way of testing/comparing.. but REMOVE the standard batteries immediately after this test. Placing the headphones on the charging cradle with standard batteries in place could cause them to rupture and leak into the headphones.. so again.. be careful if you decide to test them in this fashion.


Good luck!

I have HDR65/RS65 Sennheiser wireless headphones. I disconnected them to move stuff around, then re-connected them. Now all I get is a 2 second cycle consisting of: 1 second of static that builds in...


Try connecting them to an MP3 player or connect wired headphones to the same source to make sure the sound source is working correctly. If that works, verify the voltage on the batteries is 2.4 volts after charging. Mine stopped charging fully and the headphones wouldn't work at all, but when I connected a couple of AAA batteries to it in series, it worked great.

The headphone does not turn on anymore


I have got exactly the same problem with mine. Mine are RS140.
So if there is anybody that can help with this I would be very happy to find out what the problem is (as only used them twice)

There in no green light on RS 120. There is a red light on indicating that the headphone is being charged. Why I cannot use non-chargeable AAA batteries?


The green light only comes on when it is receiving an audio signal.

Standard batteries will work.. if you NEVER use the charging station.. and plan on replacing them every x number of hours used.. IMPORTANT.. if you forget.. and place the headset on the charging station with standard batteries.. they will probably rupture.. and may well ruin the headset..

If you decide to replace the chargable batteries.. make sure you replace them with the right size and type..

Portable DVD Player will not power up


This player should be charged up until the green light goes out to be fully charged. I usually leave them on over night.
